CTSBDC Advisor Receives “State Star” Award, Recognized Nationally

Matt Nemeth is Connecticut’s 2017 America’s Small Business Development Center (ASBDC) State Star recipient. The award is given annually to an outstanding SBDC advisor from each state.  Criteria include showing a strong commitment to small business success; making significant contributions to the state SBDC program; and being an exemplary performer.

“As a millennial and a bilingual speaker with restaurant and music experience, Matt adds diversity and strength to our team. It is my pleasure to honor his contributions to the CTSBDC and Connecticut’s business community with the State Star award,” says Emily Carter, State Director of the Connecticut Small Business Development Center (CTSBDC).

Matt and the other State Star recipients from around the country were recognized at the ASBDC annual conference in Nashville on September 5th, which included a show and reception at the Grand Ole Opry.

Matt credits the collaborative team of advisors at CTSBDC for the success he’s had working with his clients – “Being recognized as the 2017 CTSBDC State Star has been a great achievement that has to be credited to my amazing team.  I feel that without the support of such a knowledgeable, kind, and hardworking team I would not have the successes within my own client portfolio.”

Matt is a business advisor serving businesses throughout the Greater New London County. He has helped over 100 businesses start, secure financing, or strengthen their business since 2013.

Matt came to the CTSBDC with a lengthy professional background in the music industry as a musician and business owner.
